Is it worth promoting a TV Series fan page?

    I have tried many things in IM and what I understood was that no matter what method you are using, you need to get a lot of TRAFFIC .

    I tried adsense, ebay dropshipping, fiverr, CPA and in all those methods TRAFFIC was the main problem.

    Therefore as an experiment I started a fan page for a popular TV series and started promoting it. (I havent given up any of the things I was trying, this fan page is a side project)

    What do you guys think. Will it have any value? After I grow my fan base, I'm planning to sell physical products to my fans, Promote few other fan pages using the current one, try to promote CPA offers etc :)

    I see pages like 9gag have a LOT of traffic and even though the people are not in a buying mood, I always see comments like "I want to buy this, does anyone has a link" etc :)

    What's your idea? :)

    First off, you mentioned fiverr. Have you tried webtrafficgeeks or maxvisits for your traffic? Those might yield better results. For the main point, what's the TV series? Depending on how popular it is and the particular demographic it targets, it could be worth promoting. Of course, this is assuming that the series is even that popular.

    You'll never know until you try, so just give it a go. If you have the right audience it is definitely worth doing. Try to automate the work as much as possible. You can market amazon products, and set up teespring campaigns, and anything else than connects with the show.

    It obviously depends on the actual TV series you focus on. It will be easier to sell merchandise from Game of Thrones than from Downton Abbey, IMO. Good luck.

    A lot of long term marketers like myself tend to avoid niches like this. We tend to focus more on evergreen niches, passive income, and things that could still make you money even 10 years down the road. Other marketers may differ and tend to "ride the wave" so to speak. This is for people who generally know what they're doing and are good at picking up current trends. This kind of goes a long side of "site flipping". I've always avoided it because most sites sell for 10-12/months total income, so unless you put some serious work in, you are waiting a whole year just to get your money back. Plus you never know what kind of "awesome" SEO fiverr gigs they purchased to gain a temporary traffic boost before it all blows up in your face.

    Back to the point... If I had a fan page of The Walking Dead that was popular, especially with the new season 6 and Fear season coming out, I would love it.. and I could make a lot of money from it. But would I be saying the same thing 5 years from now?

    You never know.

    I think the whole FB/Fan Page method is a gamble and short term. It's not a sustainable business model for long term, anything can happen. But if you want to make a quick grand or two in a month, it's completely plausible.

    It's a good idea but you will have to wait for a long to see the results. Also, you have to assure that you post high quality images or content on your fan page!

    anyway : are you trying to make a fan page of F.R.I.E.N.D.S
    Just asking out of curiosity :)

    Cheers

    Copyright will be an issue if you make good money(even if you claim fair use), and it also depends on whether you're able to break through the hundreds of other fan sites that'll pop up for the same TV series. If you do something special about it and become a reference, as long as you steer clear of copyright infringement and make only fair use of said TV series' brands, then you should be able to make a buck. Still, the producers probably have great lawyers and if you make money off of it, they'll probably end up wanting a slice of that pie.

    Thanks for the replies guys. I was able to get 2000+ likes within a week. I get about 40 likes per post. Average Reach is about 800 per post :) For some posts I got 100+ likes and 3000+ reach :)

    I'm still not promoting any offers, products etc. I'm gonna wait for more people to like my page. My target is 10000+ fans within the next 3 weeks :)

    And no, the page is NOT a FRIENDS fan page :)

    I make parody content, and with fair use in mind I still get attempted copy right strikes and issues regarding my content. The solution was to actually stand my ground and defend my channels and sites. The only issue with a Facebook fan page would be to make your own unique content regarding the show, then be able to "monetize" it. This depends on your talent, and what works for me won't for you, simply because I designed what works for me to work solely for me. I don't promote cpa or ppd offers as they are a waste of time and resources. If I can't promote a service or resell a product directly to my fans or subscribers I'd rather just not monetize it with anything other than Adsense. Yes, there are people killing it with cpa, but the vast majority do not. The same goes for adsense or even what I do, but you are not that 1% top yet, so think about the now and how you'll get to the top 1%.

    If the show is really popular then you can earn nice money with cpa

    Thanks for the reply :) Can you please give me some ideas to monetize? My page has 2000+ fans now :) It's still too early to push offers correct?

    Can you give me some ideas for CPA offers? I get about 40 likes per post. Average Reach is about 800 per post [​IMG] For some posts I got 100+ likes and 3000+ reach :)

    Think about the long term branding and residual income, not the short term income. Me being a fan of walking dead I want to see animations, videos, parodies, comics, plush dolls, shirts, toys (legos and other things), games, even some episodes etc. I would monetize this with Amazon promotions, video and game content that I designed, gifs and parody spoofs, funny pics from the walking dead or my spoofs and more. As it builds, so does the quality, if it dies down then I will simply keep engaging my fans to my new site or fan page for the next big thing. The more you build up your image and worth in the eyes of the fans, the more money you can produce from it passively. Think pewdiepie the youtuber, he built his channel based on sincerity and stupidly funny but addicting videos. You can see vivid examples of ppd and cpa noobs on here crying about bans or about offers not converting anymore. Once everyone has been marketed to, only those offering some sort of value will keep making money, not the idiots spamming crappy viagra ads with funny pics fan pages.
